I am in pain anybody got any advice.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017

I have been having a lot of pain in my rotary cuff area and in my hip joints. I stopped doing the exercise bike and started doing the elliptical for 20 minutes to see if that would help. I do weights four times a week. I went from 40 pound weights to 30 pounds. On my arms and shoulders I went from 10 pounds to five pounds. That seemed to help. But I'm still having pain.
I thought maybe I would start taking a tablespoon of Manuka honey and see if that helps.
Does anybody else have any suggestions. I have lost 65 pounds. I still have about 135 pounds to go. I know the weight will kill your joints but they are so much better with the 65 pounds gone. I wonder if the honey and turmeric would be a good pain reliever? If any body has had any good results I would appreciate input.

    You definitely need rest days in between your workouts. And, eventually, if the pain continues you should be evaluated...not everything can be "fixed" with home remedies. Sometimes you need to know what is actually causing the pain before you can treat it or work through it. Think about yoga, water work, physical therapy...if you're having that much pain, you probably have some healing that needs to happen. Good luck!

    Both of those could be radiating from a back injury. Often times the disks being bulged or out of whack will cause pain in shoulders, hips, legs etc due to the nerves. I would take a short break from what you are doing and maybe try some physical therapy type exercises focusing on your spine, shoulder, and hip. Just a few days to give them a break. Hot epsom salts baths may help. I love the lavender epsom salts!

    I would recommend a day of rest between workouts. When you have joint pain you should not feel bad about dropping the resistance of the weights if it is causing pain. Simply drop back to whatever you can do without pain for 10 to 12 reps.

    You could also do 20-30 minutes of upper body/ core workouts on one day, and lower body/cardio workouts another day. Yoga is good for maintaining and improving flexation and range of motion. That way, you could work out at least 5 days a week and not stress or overwork your joints.

    If you are experiencing hip pain, I highly recommend Water Aerobics as it removes 50% or more of the weight on your joints for the hour you are in the water, and the resistance of the water is approximately 14 times greater than the resistance of air outside the water.

    Take a couple rest days then ease back into the workouts with something non-impact to your sore joint. I just did a bunch of research on this because I'm dealing with an over-training knee strain right now.

    Have you tried swimming or water aerobics? On occasion, my knees bother me so I will workout in the water instead of the weight room. You get resistance without so much strain and pain on your joints. Hope this can help.

    I have gotten to the age where the pain never goes away, it just moves around and I have to chase it constantly! LOL!

    Keep on Keeping on!

    Make today the greatest day of your life!
    Until tomorrow!
